Updating the highchair
Sometimes objects remind us of childhood. Perhaps there is a shabby old baby highchair with shabby paint in your house. If you throw it in the trash is a pity, but it does not fit into the interior, you can update it by simple actions. Repaint is the easiest option, but you can also do decoupage. Tell about it.Surfaces let dry: best of the day, as a last resort, you can dry the chair with a hair dryer and continue the slave . Cut a piece of the clean sponge to wash dishes, about 2 by 2 cm, using clothespins make a kind of a pen. This will be our foam sponge. Begin to apply white paint on the surface of the chair and its back with this tool (start from the inside out, then go to the front side, and it’s better not to touch the lower part of the chair). It is necessary to apply paint with blotting movements, as if trying to burst air bubbles, which are formed at the same time.Give layer dry or use a hairdryer. Now it's time to choose a background for the high chair. In this case, we take a light green color (white plus dark green). In the same way, using a sponge, we apply two layers of paint successively.After the chair dries, you can to equalize the tread surface. Pay attention: the paint is applied as if by points, and the chair is not smooth, but as if velvet. But it is not visible divorces from a brush and not polished sites. Take fine sandpaper and grind the surface. It will take quite a lot of paper: particles of paint stuck on it.Dilute the PVA glue with water to make it liquid. Decoupage is placement on the subject of the paint layer of the serving napkin. In the shops you can find a rich selection of them. At the same time, it is better to pull out the motifs from the napkin than to cut it out (this way they will better merge with the surface). But in the event that the picture has clear edges, you can carefully cut it along the contour with sharp nail scissors. We have a napkin with butterflies. We cut the butterflies, even if the motive is incomplete (we will place it on the side).First, glue the central motif on the seat (three butterflies). To do this, place the picture in the right place, start applying glue with a soft brush, starting from the middle of the image. Gradually adding glue, gently smooth the napkin, aligning the image. Try not to tear the paper. If you are just starting to learn the technique of decoupage, then take a small motive: it is easier to cope with them.In the same way we put all the butterflies on the seat of the chair and its back.
After thatAs the glue dries, you just need to attach the back to the place and cover all the beauty with two layers of acrylic construction varnish.
If necessary, update with black paint the legs of the chair.

Work orderTo get started, look at your high chair. Remains of the old paint should be removed with sandpaper. The quality and durability of the new coating will depend on this. The second step is leveling the surface.Take a putty for decorative work, apply it in a very thin layer. This is not a rubber spatula, but a regular plastic card: its smooth sides will smooth out the paste on the chair, even grinding is not required.
